We are trying to configure TCP load balancing with TLS termination. But when
we try to access the URL, we could see the below error in the nginx error
and access logs

Nginx Error Log:

2018/07/04 07:16:45 [crit] 7944#0: *61 SSL_do_handshake() failed (SSL:
error:1407609B:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:https proxy request)
while SSL handshaking, client: XX.XXX.XX.XX, server:

Nginx Access Log: - - [04/Jul/2018:07:24:55 +0000] TCP 500 0 0 0.000 "-"

The nginx.conf file looks like this

stream {
  log_format sample '$remote_addr - - [$time_local] $protocol $status
$bytes_sent $bytes_received $session_time "$upstream_addr"';
  upstream backends {
  server {
    listen 443 ssl;
    access_log /etc/access_logs/tcp_access_log sample;
    ssl_certificate      Certificate_PATH;
    ssl_certificate_key Private_Key_Path;
    proxy_ssl off;
    proxy_pass backends;
